Fundraising achievement for Arctic Tern geolocators!

14th March 2017

We recently requested your help in raising funds to continue with a ground-breaking project to track and understand the migration of Arctic Terns which nest on the Farne Islands, Northumberland. The initial research was funded by BBC Springwatch and Migrate Technology but we needed to raise funds to carry on the work. Each geolocator costs £120 and in exchange for a donation of that amount we were offering the opportunity to sponsor your own tern. Now, thanks to our members’ generosity, we have met our target and the project will continue in 2017 – thank you to everyone who donated!
